I've been looking for one, too.

Lubor Fiedler's works very well, but doesn't go far.

What do you mean by 'doesn't go far'?

Just curious.

I believe it was a joke, suggesting the Tenyo flying carpet isn't actually a REAL flying carpet.

Hence, it doesn't go far.

Maybe my joke was just really bad.

Yeah - I was overthinking the joke.

Sine I read somewhere that if you switch the lenses for a different type on these glasses - the image will be clearer.

Or you can use a different type - and whilst the image isn't as clear - the illusion is stronger since the levitation appears to have greater depth.

From what I recall - Lubor went for the ChromaDepth option which allows for a greater depth to the levitation.

[Okay - just looked up the article with relevent info.]

Here is the link. It comes down to whether you use HD or STD ChromaDepth 3D glasses:

I am a huge Lubor Fiedler fan. But - I still haven't opened my Flying Carpet trick! I keep saving it for when I am most indeed of a hit of Fiedler genius. I will probably explore the trick when the 2013 Fiedler trick is released.

Speaking of Lubor Fiedler,
Speaking overthinking something,
Speaking of Richards acerbic wit,

A couple of years ago I asked if anyone knew how I could repair
my Fielder Clock -- The pendilum -- stopped swinging!

Richard hit one out of the park with his reply.

Well, my pendilum still doesn't work, my clocksmith has retired, and I don't have a lot of ticks left, so any "new" suggestions wouldbe appreciated.

Joe, open your flying carpet and have some fun.

George, your question about your Phantom Click might best be directed here:
